TAMPA – Bucs free agent safety Jermaine Phillips is starting to line up some visits with rival clubs.

Phillips, who is still negotiating with the Bucs but is looking to get a better read on his market value, has visits with the Chargers and Seahawks lined up.

We’re not sure exactly when Phillips will make these visits but the next few days seems a likely possibility.

The Bucs have been focusing primarily on reshaping their offense during the early days of free agency.

That approach will probably start to change very soon, what with Phillips and free agent cornerback Phillip Buchanon now looking elsewhere.

Buchanon is expected to visit the Detroit Lions today.
